ncaa march madness banner logo g

The March Madness bracket is officially here, so now it’s time to get down to the fun part … and what we care about and need the most: the details on where each game will be played and at which date and time they will take place. And, of course, how to watch each game. Find that calendar and start planning your schedule accordingly. 

Selection Sunday marked the first day of a three week long sprint to the finish line where we will start with 68 teams, then pare to 64, then 32 … all the way down to four and finally one. 

In between there will be games played across the country at various regional sites from morning to night. If you want to get your fill of college basketball, then you’ll have your chance to do that. Trust me.

The dates and sites are listed below starting of course with First Four action from Dayton, Ohio, on March 19, and culminating with the Final Four and NCAA championship game on April 6 and 8 in Glendale, Arizona at State Farm Stadium. The road to the Final Four is a long but worthwhile one that will be here before you know it, so don’t miss any of the action below.  

Be sure to check in often as this story will update every single time the NCAA Tournament schedule is adjusted. Games will be aired on CBS, TNT, TBS and truTV and available on March Madness Live — and as always, you can watch every game in the tourney via March Madness Live beginning Tuesday night with the First Four.
